The necessity of catastrophe modeling is stipulated both by the essential increase of losses due to recent natural and anthropogenic hazards and by the lack of reliable empirical data. This paper focuses on modeling risks due to earthquakes. The block model as an example of approach to mathematical modeling of lithosphere dynamics is described. Algorithms for simulating the dynamics of block structures are presented and simulation results for the selected tectonic region are discussed; in the design of the algorithms, parallel computer technologies are employed.
